Akeredolu, An Ideal Leader For Nigeria – Peter Obi

The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has described the Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, as an ideal leader Nigerians desire  at this present time.

Obi said that this is because Governor Akeredolu as a leader, speaks the truth at all times no matter the consequences.

A statement by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Richard Olatunde stated that the LP Presidential candidate spoke on Tuesday in Akure, during a condolence visit to the Governor.

Obi, who said things are going wrong in the country because people choose to keep quiet, commended the Governor for speaking up for the people.

He charged Governor Akeredolu to continue to take every necessary step to protect his people, adding that the Governor is doing the right thing.

“I urge you to continue in that direction. You represent one of those things Nigerians desire, ability to speak the truth no matter the consequences.

“What is lacking in Nigeria is that we choose to keep quiet when things are going wrong. You have a man here who always speaks when things are going wrong, and I urge you to continue.”

He backed Governor Akeredolu’s resolve to arm the Amotekun security Corps, saying the Governor must continue to do his best to defend his people.

“Arm those special security people. Take every step to protect your people. It is important and it is your duty. I’m happy that you are speaking out always when necessary. May God Almighty continue to be with you and bless all of you.”

Obi condoled the Governor on the demise of his mother, Lady Evangelist Grace Akeredolu,  praying God to grant her eternal rest.

The LP presidential standard bearer equally used the occasion to commiserate with the Governor over the sad incident at St Francis Catholic Church, Owo, where 41 people were killed and several other injured.

Akeredolu, who said what happened on June 5 at St Francis Catholic Church, Owo, was horrendous, also described the sad incident as unexpected and uncommon, especially in the Southern part of the country.
